    Installing MySQL

    I have installed MySQL with an all-in-one install for Apache, MySQL, and PHP. I get the error "Could not start MySQL service on Local Computer
    Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly."

    I have searched for this error quite a few times, and came up with some solutions, but sadly I don't know how to do them. I use linux a lot, but for this particular problem I'm using Windows XP. One of the suggested solutions is to give the SYSTEM user full access to the MySQL directory. If anyone could tell me how to do this it would be great.
    My computer is awesome.

    right click on the mysql directory, properties, security tab, if the system object isn't in the list, add it, give it full permissions.

    Do note, I've had trouble getting those all in one installers to work right, you're much better off configuring each one yourself, and since you've done it in linux already it should be no sweat for you.
